This year’s National Day is going to be different due to the Covid 19 pandemic. We won’t be having the usual National Day Parade at Padang or The Floating Platform for the nation’s 55th birthday. There will be a parade and ceremony in the morning at the Padang follow by an evening show at the Star Performing Arts Centre.
But one thing that is still around is the NDP Fun Pack. The fun pack will be given to every household in Singapore. Initially, there was a huge outcry about the NDP Fun Pack. There was even a online petition to opt out of receiving the pack. I can understand why because there’s no point in having a NDP Fun Pack when you are not at the parade itself.
But I think the complaints died down after everyone sees the contents of the Fun Pack. This year’s NDP Fun Pack is a reusable grocery bag that is foldable into a small pouch. There are 20 beautiful designs done by artist with disabilities in partnership with SG Enable and Primary 5 students. There are 12 items in the fun pack including hand sanitisers, thermometer, reusable face masks and surgical masks.
NDP Fun Pack 2020 is no fun at all. They are all essentials. And it is the best Fun Pack ever.
If you haven’t collected your NDP Fun Pack, you can do so at all Community Clubs from now till 2 August 2020 (excluding Public Holiday). Visit this website to find your nearest collection centre. There is also an e-discount booklet online for great deals and offers by local businesses.
And by the way, Yeo’s has prepared some “big surprise” for those people who received the special edition Chrysanthemum Tea in their Fun Pack. More details will be unveiled on National Day itself. (I’m feeling a bit left out cause mine is the ordinary can)
A lot of industries are being badly hit by the Covid 19. Tiger is currently rallying the Singapore community to help our local F&B. With every $10 you contribute, Tiger will give you 2 Tiger or Tiger Crystal free. You can redeem them at participating outlets after the Circuit Breaker when the outlets reopen.
Tiger hopes to raise $300,000 through this initiative. All proceeds will go directly to the participating coffeeshops, bars and pubs. Tiger has contributed $100,000 to kickstart the initiative and another $600,000 worth in beer product sponsorship.
So let’s do our part to help our local F&B here. Cheers!

Most of you know by now that Singapore will be implementing a 4 weeks Circuit Breaker from 7 April to 4 May 2020 to stop the spread of Covid 19. Dring this Circuit Breaker, everyone is advised to stay at home. Essential services such as supermarket, food and medical service will remain open during this period. For the full list of essential service that can remain open during this period, visit https://covid.gobusiness.gov.sg/.
If you really need to go to the malls to get essential goods and services., check out the SpaceOut website to see if the mall is crowded before going. Do keep a safe distance from others and maintain your personal hygiene. Please remember to wear a mask. The Singapore Government is giving every resident a reusable mask. Go to maskgowhere.gov.sg to find out where you can collect your mask.
If you need to go to the parks to exercise, check out the Safe Distance @ Parks website before going. Remember, keep a safe distance while exercising. In fact, if possible, try to exercise at home. Only go out when absolutely necessary.
It is going to be a tough period. But let’s make this 28 days worth it. We will get through this. #SGUnited
“It will be a long fight. But if any country can see this through, it is Singapore. We have the resources. We have the determination. We are united. By helping one another through this, we will prevail, and emerge stronger.”
Dyson just announced a new haircare product recently. The Dyson Corrale is a hair straightener which uses flexing plates to style hair. Suitable for all hair types, it features Dyson’s Intelligent Heat Control for precise temperatures.
Unlike traditional straighteners, the unique flexing plates of the Dyson Corrale straightener mould to shape and gather the hair, giving the user greater control and therefore elevating the styling results, whilst reducing the reliance on heat. As the plates adapt to the hair, they apply tension more evenly and stop strands splaying. This greater control allows outstanding styles to be created with less reliance on heat.
The Dyson Corrale straightener has three precise heat settings – 165°C, 185°C and 210°C. Using a platinum sensor, the temperature is measured 100 times a second to deliver precise, accurate heat.
And the best part about the Dyson Corrale is that it is cordless. The built-in 4-cell lithium-ion battery provides up to 30 minutes of styling and takes 70 minutes to fully charge. You can charge it by using the magnetic charging cable or placing in a charging dock.
We don’t have the Singapore launch date and pricing for the Dyson Corrale yet. I’ll update this blog when I get them.
